The Fight

Martin Luther
Brought the truth
The color of our blood’s the same
So break the chains
And solve the pains
And we all become one race

Fight For Your Rights – Motley Crue

You would think, whats going on in the mind of a drugged out twenty something rocker back in 1985. But here we are 35 years later and the lyrics are not out of line with what is happening today.

One man makes all the policies
While the rest of us get blown away

Rock N Rolls Gonna Save The World – Y&T

Psychopaths are in charge of big economies and psychopaths are in charge of companies who support these kind of Governments.

If you want
Life, life, life
It’s time to break down the chain of command

Life, Life, Life – Y&T

The people are trying to bring change and they are met with loaded guns. The people are trying to bring change and they hope they won’t get sick with the Coronavirus.

There’s only kings and queens
And you’re a pawn in their game
Of masters and slaves

Masters And Slaves – Y&T

Will anything change after it’s all over?

In the last two years the world has had climate protests and they have led to nothing so far. Human rights protests have been happening for a long time and you would think circumstances would changed. I guess we are slaves to masters and instead of chains, we are paid a wage which has to then be paid to other institutions.

It’s the law of the jungle, only winners have rights
The losers relinquish their lives

Masters And Slaves – Y&T

Rules don’t apply to the winners, the wealthy. In Australia, a billionaire businessman returns from overseas and he and his wife are allowed to serve their 14 day quarantine at home, while everyone else needs to serve it in a hotel controlled by the police and the military.

Our PM just announced a home builder scheme that would benefit a company called Bunnings, whose CEO he is pretty cosy with and who advises the Government on policy matters.

I guess the current winners keep on winning.

I hear a siren and I feel the heat
A prowlin’ shark in black and white

Break Out Tonight – Y&T

The Police are meant to uphold the law and yet they abuse it. Remember the song “Cop Killer” from Body Count.

Did that rage against law enforcement ever disappear?

They’ll try to tear you down and fit you in
Break Out Tonight – Y&T

Everyone is born with a dream and a need to love and be loved. Conformity and hate are introduced by society and culture. Break the chains of conformity and don’t let people dictate who you should be or what you should be.

You only live once and it’s short.

So how will you approach tomorrow?

Memphis Three

If you want to know what society and politics is like, just look at the documentary “West Of Memphis”.

In it you will see incompetence and political corruption. The scary thing is, these kinds of things happen way too frequently in our life.

These kids story is just a drop in the ocean.

For those who don’t know it’s about three metal head kids (the Memphis Three) who were arrested for the murders of three 8-year old children. These metal head kids got convicted of murder and remained in prison for more than 18 years.

And what the hell is an Alford Plea?

I looked it up on Wikipedia. The Prosecutors knew they had to release them, but the only way they would do it is by an Alford Plea, so the Memphis Three claim their innocence but plead guilty. The tragedy is the killer still walks free and law enforcement can’t go after any other suspect because a piece of paper says they have the killers.

WTF.

What kind of society is this?

Is all about votes?

There is nothing here that deals with justice. You can see that a person in power once upon a time came up with this “Alfords Plea” deal so they don’t look bad because of their incompetence in developing tunnel vision.

And the current prosecutor at the end of the doco is a joke. He’s saying those kids are guilty.  If they are guilty why didn’t he go to a re-trial then?

He knew he was going to lose the re-trial because the weight of new evidence found was in favour of the Memphis Three and he would lose votes and lose his position as City Prosecutor.

In the end the parents of the murdered kids never got justice because they never found out who the real killer was.

The metal head kids will never get their 18 years in prison back. And a killer/killers are still walking the streets, even though the film alludes to the step father of one of the murdered kids as being a suspect based on his past violence rap sheet, however he wasn’t even interviewed by police.

These injustices are only brought to the light by civil rights crusaders. The rest of society turns a blind eye to it all and gets on with their daily lives of work, live, die and in our spare time, we waste it away watching dystopian shows and movies to escape the political sham and corruption infecting our society and lives.
